We climbed the volcano 2 days ago with Ervin Weekes as our guide and found it far more exhilarating than we expected! Ervin was a terrific guide - very knowledgeable, helpful, easy going. We kept a steady pace and arrived at the peak in just under 2 hours. It was very challenging - not at all a hike - definitely... More

"Nevis Peak Hike" sounds so docile...how hard can it be? It's on a small island and only 3232 feet. Turns out this "hike" is not for the faint of heart. We booked a Nevis Island legend "Reggie" as our guide and we are so glad we did. A guide is a must for first timers as it's easy to get... More

Catherine came back exhilarated and exhausted! She hired a guide through the Hermitage and two other travelers came along, she said it was straight up at times but wouldn't trade the experience for the world!

It takes approximately 2 hours each way, and some sections are scrambles up a stream or over wet rocks. Some of it is also steep and all of it is wet. You will however see an amazing range of trees, perhaps some vervet monkeys and maybe even be visited by a mongoose during lunch at the top. The crater is... More

Was a fantastic journey up and down the mountain, but make no mistake it is not a leisurely hike. It is climbing up rocks, and vines, through jungles and crevasses. And I would not recommend that anyone do it alone. I had many scrapes and bruised from the hike, but I wouldn't trade it for the world! Our guide was... More

You should believe everything you read about this being difficult. It is muddy, wet, and challenging! Overall it was amazing though when you reached the top. Make sure you ask for Reggie to be your guide. He is phenomenal

Myself and a buddy completed the hike up the mountain in about 80 minutes. Its pretty challenging and tough, but all in all a great time. We choose to have Reggie from Nevis Adventure Tours be our guide and he was an excellent choice. Very professional, very safe and I would recommend him and his company to anyone thinking about...

My husband and I completed this hike today as part of his 30th birthday trip to St Kitts. We had completed the mount liamagua crater climb earlier in the week and so were up for a challenge. We got the ferry over to Nevis and had organised to be picked up by a local taxi driver on the recommendation of... More

amazing!!Iggy was our guide, very knowledgeable about the area and good at letting you catch your breath. It is hard work you will be clambering up vertical paths over rocks and mud. There are lots of ropes where needed to help you up and down. Take stuff you don;t mind getting muddy and water. We didn't get to see the... More

My husband and I were celebrating our second anniversary in Nevis, and this hike was at the top of his to-do list. He described it to me as a hike before we went, but I found out later (during the "hike") that it's really a climb. We are both avid runners (have done several half marathons each) and we weight...
